I feel like humans ever since the beginning of time have had an innate urge to explore. We had merchants discovering countries and fertile land. We had pirates exploring the depths of the ocean
But modern travel is quite something else I believe.
With the rise of Instagram fame and Youtube and hello blogging, I feel like people are more eager to travel and explore new parts of the world.
I guess a huge part of it is this obssession with sharing how amazing our lives really our. Ar face value anyway. Summer in Greece, Winter in Serbia, Spring in Japan. We want everyone to see how great of a time we’re having don’t we?
Globalisation would be a major factor too I suppose.
I mean it’s a good thing. Exploring new places and cultures makes us less ignorant, sometimes we delve into parts of the world that our parents would have written off as “too dangerous” or “too controversial”
We are becoming something of a travel generation and it lets us understand people better, make connections and hopefully reduces prejudice in the upcoming years when the old generation gets replaced by our new, fresh and less ignorant one.
